The cottage has a number of period features with exposed beams, open fireplaces and beautiful exposed floors and provides a very interesting village home whilst still retaining all of its inherent character. The generous living accommodation includes a sitting room, twin aspect dining room and study. The kitchen is fitted with a range of cabinets and gas range cooker. There are two bedrooms and a large landing which could be utilised as a dressing room / occasional bedroom to the first floor.
